Federal Judge Declines to Block Citizenship Question From 2020 Census


A federal judge doesn’t accept privacy as a reason to immediately block the 2020 census citizenship question.

“The Bureau did not act contrary to the E-Government Act by deciding to collect citizenship data before conducting, reviewing, or releasing a PIA addressing that decision. Nor have the defendants ‘unlawfully withheld’ agency action by declining to conduct or release a PIA earlier than they were required to under the statute.”

A federal judge Friday said privacy concerns were not a sufficient reason to immediately block a question about citizenship from the census, declining a request to offer a preliminary injunction.

“The Court will deny the plaintiff’s motion for a preliminary injunction,” wrote Judge Dabney L. Friedrich.

She argued that the Electronic Privacy Information Center, which requested the injunction, did not sufficiently prove that the government needed to do a “privacy impact assessment” before it could add a question to the census.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross first announced in March of last year that he would add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census. More

A federal judge in New York issued a ruling last month that the citizenship question was unlawful. The Supreme Court is deciding whether to take that on appeal.

According to Benny Huang, illegal aliens also warp the census data so that big, liberal states such as New York and California receive more representation in Congress than they are entitled to. They are literally stealing House seats from other states.

The left always spews that their agenda is “common sense.” Finally, a judge gets to explain what common sense really means.
